If you’re looking for tasty dog treats that are locally made with love, look no further than Berry Good Farms Barkin’ Biscuits.
Barkin’ Biscuits is one of the most empowering projects offered at North Florida School of Special Education which serves students with mild to moderate intellectual differences in the greater Jacksonville area. Barkin’ Biscuits is a “micro enterprise” they created in order to provide vocational training for their Transition (ages 18-22) and Postgraduate (ages 22-40) students. As participants learn to follow recipes, mix ingredients, roll and cut the dough, and weigh and package the product, they also gain independence, confidence, social skills, directions, employment skills, and self-value as employable individuals with unique talents! The biscuits are then sold retail and wholesale as far away as Texas!
Barkin’ Biscuits are all-natural, incorporating ingredients from the school’s Berry Good Farms including wheatgrass, sweet potato, carrot, moringa and rosemary. Using fresh vegetables and herbs from their farm means that these treats really are Farm-to-Dogbowl, with students handling every step of the process, and delivering love to our fur friends.
They make 3 different flavors of treats: Peanut Butter, Wheatgrass and Carrot Sweet Potato, and gluten-free Carrot Sweet Potato biscuits.
